I wish I could give 4 1/2 stars, but just couldn't work up to 5...but this will make a perfect gift for those who love old fashioned comfort food; or as a gift to yourself. Many recipes are a bit beyond diner fare, but still simple enough for beginning cooks.
There are more than 400 recipes, not the 180 stated in the write-up. The book contains hints on many pages, such as to clean a pot with marks fill with water and add cream of tarter and bring to a boil, something my grandmother taught me, but doesn't seem to be well known today. There is a reference section including `how long will it keep' and `effects of freezing'.
Chapters include breakfast, appetizers, soups, salads, pasta, side dishes, poultry, meat, seafood, pasta, potatoes, breads, desserts, canning and preserving, barbecues. Comments and blue ribbon ratings are given.
If you are looking for a good solid old fashioned cookbook, something that would have your grandma's recipe for snow pudding or pioneer stew, but also contains braised lamb with gremolata or grilled salmon with maple mustard glaze, then this is the one for you. Just also be aware that the format is smaller than the normal 8X10, but believe me my eyesight isn't what it used to be and the pages are so clean and uncluttered I didn't have trouble reading the print.

THE OLD FARMER'S

A review by Marty Martindale

From the press which publishes Yankee Magazine and the editors of the Farmer's Almanac, this book is a collection of 400 recipes, solid recipes and a general, all'round basic cookbook for anyone. Many of the recipes are winners of recent Old Farmer's Almanac reader recipe contests. The eds promise "each and every recipe comes with the promise expectations will be met - no exceeded!" The book also carries a lot of cooking hints and tips.

I have slowly been collecting cookbooks. I am always on the look-out for cookbooks that I can easily follow without a lot of complicated ingredients. I have mostly made the desserts including the carrot cake, banana sour cream bread and both have been a huge hit. I will continue to collect cookbooks mostly to read and dream of trying the complicated recipes hoping for perfection but this one I will use on a regular basis.

The book is jam packed with incredibly easy recipes including "comfort foods", holiday entertaining, breads, cakes, soups... you name it, it's in here.

The recipes are like those your grandmother used to cook. I have made a few recipes so far and they were simple to make and I had many of the ingredients in my pantry.

I love the additional tips and "how to" sections.

If you had to own just one cookbook the Farmer's Almanac Everyday Cookbook is THE cookbook to have.

This cookbook has many favorite recipes with a twist to the ingredients. I like to try new recipes and old ones with different ingredients added.

some good recipes here, but I could get most of them in any church cookbook, so not what I was expecting from Farmers Almanac
